Official Africa Mercy Crew

We finished our field service yesterday and boarded the Africa Mercy! The last week of our field service was so great. We had the opportunity to visit a Christian elementary school started about a year ago by our translator Aly. We went in and did 2 days of VBS including the creation story and Daniel in the lion’s den. We learned from Aly that although the school teaches Christian principles, 95% of the students are Muslim. What an opportunity we had to share Jesus with these students. It was really great to see Aly’s passion to serve the kids and show Jesus’ love to them.

With the younger kids we made puppets to go
with our Daniel in the Lions Den Story

Our VBS team with Aly and his students outside the school

With the older kids we made books
about Daniel and the Lions Den

Most of the Kids come to school hungry.
They are fed a full lunch every day
before they head home. 

Darrion, Amy. Marilyn, Esther and I about to leave for the Africa Mercy!

As I sit, drinking coffee of course, in the dinning room of the Africa Mercy I can't believe I am finally here! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to serve here! More to come....
